I have been bouncing all over the place trying local craft and other micros lately. I've decided I am not on the IPA bandwagon. I appreciate them for what they are but I've found I am a porter man at heart. I enjoy all type of ales and lagers, some of the black lagers are top of the list for me. I keep coming back to porter. That and almost any type of smoked beers.
Some of my current favorites include but are not limited to:
Great Divide's Smoked Baltic Porter. Comes in 22oz bombers and hands down my favorite.
Shiner's Bohemian Black lager, only found in Shiner's familiy reunion up here in Pennsyltucky and only a four pack. Simply speaking though the family reunion case is a can't miss.
Anchor Porter, perhaps the best straight up porter on the market right now.
Founders Porter is a close second.
Although I'm not a huge fan of the IPA style, Founders Rye PA is outstanding, even if you're not a fan of that style.
If you have a smart phone get the Brewster app. It's a neat little tasting and note app. If you get it PM me and I'll friend you on it so you can see all the stuff I've tried. There's just to many to list here.
